The DDP155 Pan System (for Hitec) is perfect for the rotation of cameras or sensors on a flat surface. This system is slightly shorter than a soda can. One of the biggest problems with servos is they can not always handle a heavy side load even though they have the power to rotate your attachment. The system can even make the $9.00, nylon geared HS-311 servo an extremely rigid panning platform.
As you can see from the pictures and schematic, this system mounts the servo away from the ABS top plate via 4 aluminum standoffs. By incorporating an external ball bearing in the ABS plate ensures that whatever the servo is set to rotate will be extremely rigid side to side. Once mounted, simply use the 1/4” bore clamping hub to assist in attaching your camera or sensor to the ball bearing supported shaft. The kit comes with a 4.25” diameter, 1/4” thick ABS top plate. The plastic can be easily drilled or tapped for various needs. Kit includes all hardware and detailed instructions.
Note: Servo shown is not included and must purchase separately. This unit is compatible only with Hitec standard servo motors (311, 322, 422, 645MG, 1425CR etc)
